Lovely road map from this very scarce work, which is rarely seen on the market. The map is very similar to Ogilby's road maps in style and decoration, but on a reduced scale. Beginning at Carlisle, the road winds its way through villages, woods, hills, and parks to Barwick. Very decorative chart with scroll-like panels and seven compass roses.
